Happy Reds birthday, Scott Perry!

Perry

April 17, 1891

Scott Perry bounced from the Browns to the Cubs to the Reds when he first started in the majors, then finally found his place with the Philadelphia Athletics in 1918. He twice led the league in losses…which isn’t really something to brag about, is it? Despite the losses, however, advanced stats show that he had the third highest WAR for pitchers in the American League that season, behind all-time great Walter Johnson and Hall of Famer Stan Coveleski. He won 20 games, had a 1.98 ERA, and completed 30 of the 36 games he started that season.
